The Baltimore Orioles are not close to acquiring Arizona Diamondbacks OF Jason Kubel, and it's unlikely they will land both Kubel and Detroit Tigers SP Rick Porcello, who the O's are also interested in. Other possibilities for the Orioles include re-signing SP Joe Saunders or trading for Chicago Cubs OF Alfonso Soriano, whom they have also pursued in a trade. The Cubs would need to take on the bulk of Soriano's remaining $36 million salary over the next two years, though. And Soriano would need to waive his no-trade clause. The Orioles may be willing to offer up RP Jim Johnson in order to acquire Porcello from the Tigers.

Baltimore Orioles general manager Dan Duquette has said he would be open to adding another relief pitcher, even though he has a full relief corps. The Orioles currently have CL Jim Johnson and RP's Pedro Strop, Darren O'Day, Luis Ayala and Troy Patton. RP Tommy Hunter is a likely candidate to return, as is RP Brian Matusz. "The bullpen was strong last year," Duquette said. "These guys are at the age where some of them should improve and a couple of them should be able to maintain and perform at the level they did this past year, but that wouldn't preclude us from adding some additional depth to our pitching staff."
